Quick & Easy "Fried" Rice

no-more-ramen:

This is my go-to meal. It in no way tastes like real fried rice, but it’s pretty nutritious, takes only about 5-10 minutes to make, and is very filling! Also, you can make this whole meal in the microwave, which I do at work a lot. It’s not fried that way but it’s still pretty good. Just…

That moment in CA:TFA where Steve pulls Bucky up off the table and Bucky’s all, “I thought you were smaller.” And the expression on his face to me clearly says that he thinks he’s gotta be tripping balls at this point, hallucinating Steve coming to his rescue, but so very confused…

In Istanbul, there’s a vending machine that feeds stray dogs in exchange for recycled bottles.

Ill say it again.
This is a terrible idea.
This is going to get someone bit, this is going to get someone sick.  Those dogs are hungry, theyre strays.  They arent ‘pets’.  They could easily be sick, or just aggressive. I know that this was done with good intentions but I cant believe they actually built a machine without thinking what a giant risk this could be. Other animals could show up, the animals could fight each other.  A kid could try to walk up to the animals and pet it and get themselves bit. 
Instead of feeding wild strays, money should go to shelters and to charities that can get these animals off the streets.  Feeding them fixes nothing.  Theyre still on the streets.  You can not help a stray problem by feeding them. They will crowd in this area, they will have puppies in this area.  Someone WILL get hurt if this becomes a trend.  This machine is a time bomb. 
I dont know what the laws are in istanbul, but in the US, if one of these dogs bit a person, theyd probably be put down.  This is a threat to both the dogs AND the humans in the areas safety.
This is a horrible idea. 

I was actually in Istanbul about a month ago, and I found that in Turkey, stray dogs and cats are simply seen as local wildlife. Since the Turks are very against euthanizing animals for the purpose of population control, the animals are tagged, vaccainted, spayed/neutered, then re-released. This is in hopes that the population will decline over time, due to the inability to breed. The dogs are very calm, and the people know to respect their space. And this idea is widely approved by the general population, since keeping the dogs fed will keep them healthy and happy, and discourage begging at local restaurants. 

That eases my worries a bit, thank you.  I still think it could end badly if a dog that hasnt been caught shows up, and really any animal is unpredictable (including other ones that might show up). Or that it would be better to instead give money to shelters.
